Summary: I bought the EU version of this game and couldn't really get into it... I found the loading times annoyingly slow at times also. It is a unique game for the DS but it seems rushed and unfinished... a shame.
Summary: It can get frustrating at times on timing the spells and having enough mana to do so. However, drawing spells can be fun though sometimes you need to get level ups before you can get on your quest unless you think you can defeat the 'boss' easily.
Excerpt: As more and more games are being released that take advantage of the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection, the leap from no online play to online play is finally starting to sink into the minds of most Nintendo DS fans.

Summary: I started playing this game recently and already have many mixed thoughts about it. This is a role playing game, whereby you control your allies using the stylus and battle enemies and using your newly learnt magic to defeat them. In this game, the storyline is that you are learning about magic and your grandma, teaches you how to do certain things with your wand.

Pros: Controls quite easy to master, fun for a while
Cons: Fighting sequences a bit repetitive after a while
